Objective To investigate and analyze the status of occupational musculoskeletal disorders, sleep quality and work stress of nursing staff. Methods Using the judgment sampling method, 260 nurses from the Ninth People＇s Hospital affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University Medical School were investigated using the occupational musculoskeletal disorders standard questionnaire, Pittsburgh sleep quality scale and work stress source scale. Results The prevalence rate of WRMDs in neck, shoulder and waist was 70.76%, 68.85% and 65.77% in 260 nurses. The PSQI total score, nursing major and skills, and working time score of patients with neck and shoulder pain were compared with those without pain, and the difference was statistically significant（P〈0.05）. The scores of patients with neck and shoulder pain and non-pain patients in nursing, working environment and interpersonal communication were not statistically significant（P〉0.05）. Compared the score of PSQI, nursing specialty and skills, working time and working environment between the patients with and without pain, the difference was statistically significant（P〈0.05）. There was no statistically significant difference（P〉0.05）in the scores of nursing patients and interpersonal communication between patients with and without pain. Conclusions Nursing staff is a group with high prevalence of WRMDs. People with neck, shoulder and waist pain have poor sleep quality and great work pressure. Therefore,prevention of WRMDs should be strengthened to ensure the health of nursing staff.
